Fulltime Work for Network Consultants, Desktop Service Technicians,
Security Experts, and Online Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to hire fulltime, results-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network consultants with Cisco CCIE, CCNP, or CCNA certification; security consultants who have CISM or equivalent security credentials; and advanced system design experts with experience in mobile solutions, wireless networking, service continuity, business continuity, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for professionals who can work on Progent's staff of desktop service technicians and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is looking for talented managers able to operate effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of skilled and motivated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a competitive value-based fee model, We have been able to expand our customer base rapidly while delivering professional support to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the United States. A sophisticated virtual office network, a common information database, and a team strategy for problem solving have helped Progent to retain a skilled consulting team and a satisfied customer base.

If you are a network professional with technical support expertise, teaming with Progent or helping our customers will enhance your knowledge via cooperation with our group of highly supportive, talented consultants. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and computer support to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to collaborate closely with decision makers and add significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is hiring technical professionals who can show verifiable certification in their special expertise. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco professionals, have your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco Certified Network Professional credential. For security, you should have earned you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, CISM, or one of the other leading security certifications. Of course, we are familiar with “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, simply because a certificate does not guarantee expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you have mastered your field, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The crux of the matter is that if you are a professional, then clients deserve to see certifications. We can promote your talents, but you should have a baseline of credentials for Progent to work with. In case you are strongly against the concept of credentials, Progent can sympathize with and honor your position, but you are likely not an appropriate candidate.

Enhance Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Joining a Great Team of Network Engineers

Progent's company culture will allow you to become a better professional by improving your information technology skills and increasing the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this commitment by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering an advanced network and communications architecture, using specialized application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven business models for finding and maintaining clients.

The main factor that distinguishes Progent from other network support companies is the quality of our support professionals. Among the 50 or so consultants who have teamed with us, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, network security, Mac, Linux, server virtualization, or other vital application, we deploy experts who can enable you to be effective on major projects by combining the collective experience of Progent's team of experts.

To ensure the productivity of Progent's consultants, we invest heavily in providing the most powerful tools to perform the job efficiently. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office infrastructure enables effortless communications, cooperation, and information exchange with fellow Progent consultants — entirely from at-home or mobile offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue because of daily drives to a conventional office, and any travel you do for on-site client jobs is based on your own schedule, not Progent's. The most attractive part is that most of Progent's support work can be done remotely, offering maximum productivity for billable time. In practice, some Progent staff do remote support exclusively.

Our operations are set up for reacting rapidly and efficiently to client needs via information exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's engineers operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and resolutions are carefully tracked, documented, and archived for easy retrieval, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and customer satisfaction is always monitored. We strengthen the sense of connection through monthly team conferences and quarterly company-wide events.

The majority of Progent's team is situated throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a rapidly expanding team of network experts from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that limit the efficiency of conventional company models. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive benefit plan to promote the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have world-class consulting professionals, Progent's sales and operations groups match the high standards that is Progent. These high-performance contributors to Progent’s growth are helping us to target and sign up the 50-60 new clients we are currently engaging every month. Progent lately celebrated the providing of support to our 1,000th client. Just type “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why we are also an effective sales organization.

Having a passion for technical proficiency is a key for success with Progent. A job in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than is possible in any other position in network technology. Being exposed to a continual series of technical challenges is what keeps consulting interesting. Customers rely on a consultant to do the “hard stuff.” Creative tasks, leading-edge deployments, puzzling or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the foundation for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stagnate or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for network engineers in traditional corporate jobs. You will wake up every day enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by building strong customer contacts and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but we are a relationship-focused company heart and soul. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like cooperating with a varied assortment of people, then we are in all likelihood a poor fit.

If this sounds right for you, we urge you to contact Progent about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Lifestyle Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Sophisticated Virtual Office Infrastructure

Progent is convinced that a carefully architected and executed network is a pivotal piece for accelerating a company's success, and we apply this belief in our corporate network infrastructure.
